Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook
I found this page that describes how to remove the drive in a 3000, it should be similar to the computer you are running
1) remove the side panels from your case.
2) disconnect the drive cables from the back of the old drive.
3) remove the mounting screws holding the drive in place.
4) remove the old drive.
5) look at the jumper setting on the back of the old drive to determine if it is master
6) make sure that the new drive's jumper settings match that of the old drive.
7) insert the new drive into the bay that the old drive came out of.
8) replace the mounting screws to secure the new drive in place.
9) attach the drive cables to the new drive.
10) put the side panels back on your case.
11) boot the computer and confirm that windows recognizes the new drive.

For the Acer Aspire 5520 I'm working on, (Acer Aspire 5520-5156, mode nol: ICW50)
Remove the three black screws under the battery, not the silver screws.
VERY carefuly pry off the power button cover. It will make 'snapping' sounds and if you where gentle nothing will be broken.
The keyboard has no screws holding it and can be slid toward the screen and very gently pryed out, taking care not to tear the ribbon cable, as mentioned before.
When the keyboard is out the cable can be released by gently pulling the cable lock on the header toward the cable, the thin (black in this case, it's usualy a different color than the white connector) plastic part of the connector I just use my fingernails, one index finger on each end slowly pulling till it releases.
Pull the cable out using the pull tab. You can just pull the flat cable out with the pull tab without releasing the calbe lock but you stil need to release the cable lock to properly put in the new cable, then push the cable lock back tight to the connector.

Pull The Battery... Unplug The AC Adapter....
Press and Hold The Power On Button For 30 Seconds...
Reinsert The Battery, Plug In Ac Adapter... Attempt to Power On..
Also Try Removing The Battery And Powering Up Using The Power Cord Alone.....
If Still No Power.... Remove and Reseat The Memory Modules...
You'll Next Need To Check To See If The DC Jack Is Faulty...
If It's Faulty, You'll Need To Desolder It, Clean The Board, Resolder a New One ON....
If Still No Power...
Check The Heatsink/Fan Assembly...it might be clogged...
Possibly Faulty Video / GPU Chip....Or a Shorted Out Motherboard..
